aReW recordings presents [RW-059] Simon Waldram - Industrial Skyline
Introducing Simon Waldram's debut release on aReW recordings net label.
The River was inspired by the compositional approaches of Can and Miles Davis. Nearly an hour of improvised guitar was recorded, which was then chopped up, processed and re-arranged into one 20 minute piece of music. Maelstrom is meant to represent an overloading of the synapses before they gradually shutdown for good. While The River is a musical description of the landscape of an industrial city, Maelstrom is the inner journey of a person living in that same environment.
Simon Waldram released his first album, Conchology, on his own label in 2009. This was followed by Songs Without Words in 2010 and The Day the Signal Died in 2011.
Simon is always pushing the boundaries and never sticks to one style with recordings ranging from experimental and instrumental to indie pop and psych-folk.
Simon has many influences including Halaka, Nick Drake and Galaxie 500 and uses an acoustic and electric guitars with different effects pedals as well as toy keyboards and different percussive instruments to achieve his sounds.
